Dvorak explains

You'll want to read the whole thing, which is on Buzzblog here, but Dvorak's reply -- a screed headlined "Getting it Wrong About the iPhone" -- primarily blames Apple for forcing him to opine about a device he had not held. This is how it ends:

"When I actually got to see the phone I was enthralled like everyone and regretted getting screwed over by the Apple 'machine.' But it was an entertaining exercise and a lot of Apple fans think it's hilarious I could be so wrong. But these people never liked me in the first place. And as for my prediction that this phone would be a bad idea for Apple to pursue, anything can still happen. Time is a cruel mistress."
